One of the biggest IAQ related health problems in homes is respiratory illnesses, particularly asthma and rhinitis, which was well captured on the RCPCH report that Fleur mentioned. I have been working on a project in the US looking at the use of low-cost monitors for IAQ management, improving asthmatic conditions in children. More details to follow once they are published, but in meant time the pilot study can be accessed here.
Hi, I’m Alejandro Moreno-Rangel, an early career researcher at Lancaster University. I am interested in Indoor air quality (IAQ), particularly in homes, sustainable buildings and the impact of both housing design and IAQ in human health. Look forward to work with you all!
